2.5 How to serve document


Any document that is required by these rules to be served may be served—


by personal service; or


by sending it to the person’s address for service; or


if no address for service has been provided, by sending it to the person’s last known postal address or place of residence or business; or


by being left for the person at the person’s place of residence with a member of the person’s family living with him or her who appears to be of or over the age of 18 years; or


by any other method agreed by the parties or approved by the court or a Registrar.


Any document is personally served by leaving the document with the person to be served, or, if that person does not accept it, by putting it down and bringing it to the notice of that person.


This rule is subject to rules 2.6 and 2.7.
